Continuum's Guides for the Perplexed are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that readers find especially challenging. Concentrating specifically on what makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material. Paul Ricoeur was one of the giants of contemporary Continental philosophy. He also knew and drew upon the Analytic tradition. Over a long life, he pursued questions of philosophical anthropology as they relate to a good life, lived with and for others in just institutions. His work has been translated into numerous languages and widely discussed by legal theorists, historians, literary critics and theologians as well as philosophers.
